Orientation Programme @ ISID

One-Week Orientation Programme in SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH for Research Scholars and Teachers belonging to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and other Marginalised Groups during March 02–07, 2015


The Institute for Studies in Industrial Development (ISID) will be organising a one-week 'Orientation Programme' during March 02–07, 2015 for research scholars and teachers from colleges and universities belonging to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and other Marginalised Groups. The programme is sponsored by the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR), New Delhi.

The objective of the programme is to build research capacities with a special focus on marginalised groups in India. The programme is multi-disciplinary in nature that seeks to help the participants in three specific areas: i) to refresh their theoretical knowledge and contemporary issues of research on social exclusion and discrimination; ii) to equip them with advanced research methods and appropriate data to undertake research in social science; and iii) to impart knowledge of modern technology (ICT) in social science research and to disseminate their work effectively. The week-long programme will consist of lectures, policy debates, group discussions, exposure to databases and research methods along with hands-on exercises. Reputed academicians working on the problems related to education, skill development, health, employment, poverty, gender issues etc. with a specific focus on social exclusion will be invited to deliver lectures.


The young social science researchers and teachers from colleges/universities belonging to any of the above social groups and interested in pursuing research related to social exclusion would constitute the target audience of this programme. A batch consisting of 25–30 participants will be selected based on their suitability on all India basis. The participants will get free boarding and lodging facility in the campus guest house on twin-sharing basis. Three-tier AC train fare by the shortest route will be reimbursed.

Desirous candidates may send their CVs along with a write-up of about 250 words, giving their area of research interest, through e-mail to on or before 2nd February 2015. Selected candidates will be intimated by February 7, 2015. Further details and programme updates can be found at:
